The Clubhouse: Carmelo Anthony takes a stand A look back at summer 2016, when Melo decided to challenge himself and fellow athletes to speak up about police brutality

The title of captain on Team USA’s basketball team comes with some complicated connotations in today’s America. For Carmelo Anthony, the 2016 Olympics started as an opportunity to get back to winning and cement his legacy as one of the greatest Olympians of all time. But after troubling events involving police violence against young black men took the national stage once again, his thought process began to change. With virtually unparalleled respect among his peers, Anthony took an opportunity to create a dialogue. Last summer, we crossed the nation with the Olympic captain to explore his role of representing Team USA during a crossroads in this nation’s history.
